The Destinations
Famed for its serene canals and preserved Renaissance architecture, Venice is a city best viewed from a gondola. More than 100 islands connected by a network of canals make up the main city, so visitors never run out of nooks and crannies to investigate. Catch a show in the gilded La Fenice opera house, see stunning architecture of St. Mark's Basilica overlooking the Piazza San Marco, and spend an afternoon strolling the car-free walkways and bridges of the city center.

As the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Florence holds a special place in the world of art. The Duomo dominates the skyline and breathtaking art is found at every turn: see Botticelli's The Birth of Venus at the Uffizi Gallery, Michelangelo's David at the Accademia, and learn the history of fashion at the Gucci Museum. But don't neglect your other senses—Florence is also home to world-renowned Tuscan cuisine.

All roads lead to Rome—and it's clear why. This former seat of the Roman Empire remains one of the cultural capitals of the world. Hop on a moped to travel the city's seven hills from monument to museum to landmark. Spanning millennia of history, the Eternal City is home to the ancient ruins of the Colosseum and the Forum; the baroque opulence of St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican; and a culinary tradition that includes some of the best pizzerias and gelaterias on the continent.

Three cities, three singular personalities, one trifecta of iconic Italy. Experience them all with this Escape courtesy of go-today.

The Itinerary
day 1: You'll board your overnight flight from the US to Venice.

days 2 and 3: Arrive in Venice for a two-night stay. Choose one morning to take a 1.5-hour walking tour of Venice, which begins at Piazza San Marco and includes stops at St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, and Santa Maria Formosa, with history and anecdotes narrated along the way. You'll also make your way to the Marco Polo House and the Malibran Theater.
Two nights at the Santa Chiara Hotel, the Hotel Canaletto, Hotel Villa Rosa, or comparable three-star hotel. Daily breakfast provided.

days 4, 5, and 6: A train will take you from Venice to Florence, where you'll spend the next three nights. A two-day pass gives you access to hop-on, hop-off tours of Florence. Two routes take visitors by the Duomo, the Basilica di Santa Croce, and the Uffizi Gallery, among other sights. Along the way, you'll also see the important works of Italian Renaissance masters Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael.
Three nights at the Hotel Meridiana, the Athenaeum Personal Hotel, the Hotel Magenta, the San Gallo Palace, Hotel Delle Nazioni, or comparable three-star hotel. Daily breakfast provided.

days 7, 8, 9, and 10: Once you arrive in Rome via train, transfer to your home base for the next four nights. An open schedule allows you to spend the days as you please. Explore on your own, or use your two-day pass to see the sights on hop-on, hop-off tours of Rome. The route shows you St. Peter's Basilica—approached through the grand elliptical Piazza—the famed Swiss Guardsmen of the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps.
Four nights at the Hotel Clodio, the Hotel Albani Roma, or comparable hotel. Daily breakfast provided.

  • "A good-looking city! Naked like Michelangelo’s David or rugged up in the latest winter fashion by their own world-class designers, Florentines and their city never fail to impress. At times it seems nothing much has changed since the days of the Medici."
